    Pros

    (1) About Compliance Professional Practicum
    It provides a great opportunity for fresh grads/young grads who want to enter the financial service industry, especially with a focus on compliance. CS has a holistic and comprehensive compliance infrastructure, where grads can take rotations in various subject matter expertise.

    (2) About working in CS
    The overall experience as a junior employee in CS is excellent - the international working experience, brilliant people, advanced technology, colorful work-life balance activities all add on to it.

    Cons

    The turnover is pretty high, even in back office functions. It is difficult to know "who to find" or "who's doing what" in the huge bank platform.

    Pros

    Nice physical environment. Exposure to international business and work. Lots of investment in tech and forward looking hence good place to learn stuff. Private bank values staff more than investment bank.

    Cons

    Singapore is not really a "business centre" so don't expect much proposal to be accepted. Bosses are almost all European in the Singapore office. No increments or bonus. Little Pay adjustment once every 4-5 years is hardly sufficient. Very efficient so can lose ur job anytime to cost cutting.

    CS has fantastic work environment where people are friendly. One thing that really endeared me to CS was that they treat contract workers well and include them in all activities unlike ANZ or some of the other banks I have worked for
